Presidential Office Building, Taipei

#39 of 653 in Things to do in Taipei
Architecture lovers and politics buffs will enjoy seeing Presidential Office Building--the tallest structure in Taiwan at the time of its construction. Completed in 1919, the building initially acted as the seat of the colonial government. After damage sustained in World War II bombings, Chen Yi restored the edifice to its former glory and it later became the presidential office in 1950. Though the structure faces east, giving it excellent views of Shishou Mountain, visitors can only view it from outside. Stop by to admire the historic building and snap a few photos.

  • Security is more serious, but there are professionals to do it. The teachers are constantly communicating with us. There is a laugh, not a delivery. The teacher taught us more about whether the President was at the office and was worth a visit.

  • The building itself is so beautiful, and with her background, it adds up to a few points, and many people think that she is very close to the Tokyo train station. It should be because Taiwan has been governed by the Japanese rule! A large meadow in front of the president's mansion, more lined and beautiful! But not too close to the photo, the soldier Big Brother will advise to stop!
